IPL 2022: Suresh Raina Wished ‘Champ’ Rohit Sharma On His Birthday

Former India batsman Suresh Raina had a special tweet for “master of cricket” Rohit Sharma as the latter celebrates his birthday on Saturday, April 30th.

Born in 1987 in Nagpur, Sharma has become arguably India’s finest white-ball opener and is currently one of the best all-format openers. He’s established a legacy of his own in the IPL – having led Mumbai Indians to an unprecedented five IPL titles.

Wishes have been pouring in throughout the day for the ‘Hitman’ as he turns 35. A heartwarming birthday tweet also came from Suresh Raina, who has presently taken the commentator’s role for the IPL 2022.

Raina lauded “champ” Rohit Sharma for his achievements as a cricketer, and hailed him for inspiring the coming generations.

“My best wishes to the master of cricket @ImRo45 champ. You have made all of us proud & inspired generations to come! May God bless you with the best always!” Suresh Raina, the former Chennai Super Kings batsman, tweeted.

Here, check out Raina’s wholesome tweet on Rohit Sharma’s 35th birthday:

Fans and experts are craving a big knock from the MI captain on his special day as he has struggled for a significant innings in the ongoing IPL 2022. In 8 innings, Sharma has managed 153 runs at an average of 19.12 while striking at a mediocre 126 with a best of 41. As many as 6 batters – including pacer Jaydev Unadkat – have a better average this season so far than the MI opener.

As a consequence of their skipper’s own dipping form, MI as a unit have also been unable to get even a single victory in their 8 matches so far. Having lost all their matches so far, the five-time champions are virtually eliminated from the playoff race. They will take on the second-placed Rajasthan Royals on Saturday evening at the DY Patil Stadium.

The Mumbai Indians squad celebrated Rohit’s birthday with a special blue and orange cake. The franchise uploaded the video in which the opener cuts the cake; his wife Ritika is alongside him and other players also feed him the cake.
